 Michale, thank you very much. In case anybody else have problems with this, here is what I did to have ttk working:

1. I just download ttk from here:


2. After downloading the file, decompress it.
3. Double click in the setup.py file, which create the ttk.pyc, and copy both, the ttk.py and ttk.pyc into %Python%\Lib\lib-tk

After that one should be able to use the ttk modules.
